Rosemary Officinalis herb starter plant
About the Rosemary 'Family': Rosemary is a woody perennial herb from the Lamiaceae family. The foliage is fragrant, evergreen and needle like, usually being a silvery green on top and whiter underneath with a strong flavour. Fresh or dried leaves are used a lot in Mediterranean cuisine and have a slightly bitter, astringent taste with a characteristic aroma complementing many foods such as stuffing, roasted meats & vegetables and are especially good when paired with barbequed foods. Rosemary is sometimes used as an ornamental herb as it can easily be pruned into hedges or used in topiary. Rosemary flowers are most often a deep blue but can also be pink or white depending on the variety and bloom throughout spring and summer with some varieties having very long or unexpected flowering periods.
About Rosemary Officinalis: Officinalis is often seen as a boring option when it comes to Rosemary but in our opinion it's still one of the most useful and best tasting varieties which matches very well with lamb and beef. The plant itself is quite attractive and can even be cut to form a hedge.
Can grow to a height of around 150-250cm and can spread to around the same.
